the fiscal cliff talks. this is from yesterday. >> republicans know where we stand. we've said it and said it and said it so many times. the president said the same thing. it's been at least two weeks since we met at the white house and we're still waiting for a serious offer from the republicans. really now is the time for the republicans to move past this happy talk about revenues, ill-defined of course, and put specifics on the table. the president made a proposal. we need a proposal from them. >> the proposal includes $1.6 trillion in new revenues. other proposals out. some deal with unspecified entitle cuts and some spending, there's a write-up in "usa today." we'll show you that during the course of this segment. but that's the proposal as far as it was delivered by the secretary. i suppose more reaction will come today. but we're getting your thoughts on ways to prevent this from happening, you can alsoal reach out to us on twitter and facebook. here is front royal, virginia. ramona on our republican line. ramona, are you there? >> i am here. caller: thank you for let me me speak. i
